Finding more of myself


There have been several times in my life when I felt like Humpty Dumpty falling off the wall. But every time I pieced my life back together, something remarkable shifted and changed inside of me. The powerlessness of illness, the pain of loss and sorrow, the hopelessness that suffering brings, and darkness with it's uncertainty, have all been my teachers. They taught me how to be more selfless and compassionate in healthy ways (not the co-dependent way). I learned lessons about patience, forgiveness, worthiness, self-care, and most of all, unconditional love... This gut-wrenching process was ego-deflating, lonely, and frightening, but it humbled me, healed my heart in unexpected ways, and set me free...

Faith in the Unknown


Years ago I had a spiritual experience that changed the course of my life forever. Not only did I get a deep glimpse of a world without pain, but I opened up to God so completely that my life ceased to be my own. I have spent the last twenty years navigating a path that still remains a mystery to me, yet I continue to trust it with my heart and soul...

A soft heart



Unconditional love is patient, tolerant, forgiving...
It doesn't seek special relationships. 
It is generously extends itself to everyone.
To give pure love, we must first, love ourselves. 
Otherwise the love we give to others 
is limited, often painful, and comes with strings...

Looking inward

Saw these on vacation..

The artist is Emerson

Love his stuff...


When children play pretend games and are swept away by their imaginations, it's endearing to watch. But when people carry this behavior into their adulthood, it's not cute and there are consequences for it. Creating a make-believe story about our lives rather than looking deeper at the truth, is called living in denial. There is nothing empowering about seeing life through an illusionary lens. If we aren't willing to face ourselves honestly, we can be assured that avoidance is the way we are trying to manage our pain. It will never work! Avoiding our authentic feelings only leads to numbness, judgment, unresolved anger, jealousy and insecurity, fear...

Contentment




The mind searches for something to fulfill it
while the soul rests because it feels no lack...

A Greater love...


There is a love that is far greater than the personal love 
we experience with our family, friends, community... 
The love I'm speaking of incubuses all of life... 
It is consistent, infinite, unconditional...
It witnesses everything as God...

Seeing the beauty...


An open heart doesn’t see things as good or bad, 
right or wrong. It accepts everything as it is...
